Fountainview members worked with artist and fellow member Barbara Ashton to improve their watercolor skills in a lively class held at the sales center in Playa Vista. They are looking forward to exploring the many artistic opportunities in the 1500 square foot creative art studio at Fountainview, a dramatic work space with abundant natural light.

On a beautiful November morning, FV members brought their four-legged friends for a meet and greet at one of the Playa Vista dog parks.  After a romp around the park, members and their doggies took a lovely walk through the neighborhood passing by homes, parks and the newest parts of Playa Vista:  The Resort and Runway.   One of the members commented on the ease of everything in Playa Vista, “It’s so convenient to get around and everything is so close.  We had a nice walk, cup of coffee, and I even made my bank deposit.”

Posted In: News

Edited from LA Times articles August 4, 2015 and September 1, 2015.

This past summer medical giant Cedars-Sinai Health System announced it is expanding to the tech hotbed of Playa Vista as well nearby Marina del Rey.

Cedars-Sinai officials said they plan to open a medical office featuring primary-care doctors and specialists in Playa Vista’s central retail district in late 2016.

The 32,000-square-foot office will be at the Runway in Playa Vista. This new location will be staffed by about 24 physicians, and it will be able to treat an estimated 500 patients per day.  The Playa Vista location will support a wide range of services including internal medicine, urgent care, dermatology, and obstetrics and gynecology.

Also this summer Cedars-Sinai Health System announced it has acquired the 145-bed Marina Del Rey Hospital and neighboring office building.

Marina Del Rey Hospital will operate as an affiliate of Cedars-Sinai and continue to provide its existing services, including a 24-hour emergency room. All 660 hospital employees will remain in place, according to Cedars-Sinai.

Both of these deals fit in with Cedars-Sinai’s ongoing efforts to expand and make care more convenient to patients in the community. It’s also part of a larger consolidation trend among U.S. hospitals and, more recently, big health insurers.

Private Screening at Cinemark Theatre

TOPPING OFF CELEBRATION… A MILESTONE!

Since construction began in September 2014, Fountainview at Gonda Westside has reached an important milestone with the “Topping Off” of the structure.  This event was celebrated by members who plan to make their home at the new community.  The gathering provided the opportunity to sign a steel beam that will be placed in the structure.  As they enjoyed afternoon tea, Los Angeles Jewish Home CEO Molly Forrest provided an update.  Forrest shared that the construction of the building is on schedule, on budget and on track for completion by late 2016.

UPDATE ON SKILLED NURSING CENTER

She also updated members on the continuing progress being made behind the scenes to establish the Jewish Home’s skilled nursing/rehabilitation center in West Los Angeles.  The Home’s leaders have met with several potential donors interested in underwriting the facility.  They are also evaluating the feasibility of various sites.

What better way to enjoy the summer than with lively music, good food and fruity tropical drinks? Set against Playa Vista’s Bandshell stage, Fountainview members dined on good old fashioned kosher hot dogs and French fries, with a healthy salad bar too.

Fitness in its many forms is important to Fountainview members as evidenced by the enthusiastic response of nearly 100 members who came for a private tour of Playa Vista’s newly opened community fitness venue, The Resort.  The Resort is open to all Playa Vista residents and will be available to Fountainview members once they have taken up residence in late 2016.  Highlights of the Resort are the outdoor swimming pools and spas heated year-round, the two-story open air fitness center with trainers and many group fitness options.

Cinemark Movie Night

Opera aficionados, hikers, museum-goers, fitness buffs and music lovers…. Fountainview members are all of these things and more.   This summer members have had several opportunities to explore their new neighborhood and meet future neighbors who share their interests.

Playa Vista’s newest venues – Runway and The Resort, gave members a preview of life in Playa Vista.

In July we enjoyed our first evening at Cinemark Theatres which brought together opera lovers for The Merry Widow.  Before the show members enjoyed a wine and cheese reception on the theatre’s private terrace.   Opera is regularly shown at this Cinemark Playa Vista theatre on Wednesday evenings with Saturday showings starting in the near future as well as special ballet events joining the lineup.
